Santa Cruz Mountains Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

This is fantastic. Foxy, animal nose of black currant, brambles and quinine. Such pretty aromas. Really light, almost ethereal on the palate. Tart and structured, with delicate tannins brushing the finish, and a wonderful saltiness. Super harmonious. 9.5+ — 9 days ago

Bates Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 1991

In formidable shape, wrapping up its third decade. The nose is striking. Smooth on the palate, tannins resolved, tertiary characteristics. Still enough fruit and acidity to keep it fresh. Cork was impeccable. Double decanted, modest amount of sediment. Winemaker’s comments: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, Bates’ Ranch. Dusty, earthy, aromatic cedar, berry bouquet. Elegant, rich, bright fruit flavor balanced with soft tannins. Unfined and unfiltered. 774 cases produced. Bottled November, 1993 — 5 days ago

San Cruz Mountains Riesling 2019

Often times lacking the acidity and tensions found in other countries, this is a beautiful example@of American riesling. While it shouldn’t be compared to a German Riesling for example, this still has a powerful presence. A bit more round but it’s enveloping. Very good stuff from a really good dude! — 21 days ago

Trout Gulch Vineyard Chardonnay 2017

Pale gold. Lemon, minerals, high acidity and bitterness level. Crisp, sinewy wine. Apple skin, green melon, paraffin, freshly cut green herbs. Many users say they find this Chablis-esque, and I can see that.

After a day in the fridge this is slightly richer and less restrained. Very nice wine.. 👍🏻

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2002

1 hour decant(some fine sediment). A remarkable dark purplish garnet color with a little bricking. On the nose: that sweet aged cab perfume, creme brulee, raspberry, mint, earth, and spice. Taste: A creamy, soft, medium plus body wine with cedar, raspberry, dark chocolate, and a cherry mineral long finish. Rocking its drinking window ready to go years. Cheers! — 13 days ago
